Area Popular For Winter Recreation Closing Early This Season
A popular winter recreation area on national forest land that straddles Nevada and California is closing early for the season.
The Bridgeport Winter Recreation Area within the Humboldt-Toiyable National Forest usually closes to motorized travel at the end of April, regardless of the amount of snow on the ground.
It's closing a week early on Monday because the snow isn't deep enough. The recreation area is popular for backcountry snowmobiling.
It lies within the forest's Bridgeport Ranger District, based in Bridgeport, California. About two-thirds of the district is in Nevada.
